SHELTON, Conn., June 2015 – EAO Corporation, the expert partner for Human Machine Interfaces (HMI), announces the general availability of its new technical article offering insight into design considerations of HMIs for the machinery design and industrial automation sector. The article also addresses how HMIs play a vital role in machinery design.

This detailed technical article discusses new HMI component technology, mixed technology solutions, and standards in HMI construction and design. According to a recent European Agency of Safety and Health at Work report on the mechanical engineering industry, the upward trending high number of employees working with machines or computers means that proper design of HMIs is essential. The report also cites poorly designed HMIs can lead to increased occupational diseases, such as stress or musculoskeletal disorders, as well as a rise in occupational accidents.

EAO offers insights about how HMI technology and design has undergone considerable changes over the years to meet the increasing demands of the mechanical engineering industry.
